The Town of North Salem [†] is situated in the northeastern Westchester County, New York approximately 50 miles north of Manhattan. The town is approximately 22.9 square miles in area and is traversed by the Titicus River. The town is bordered by the town of Somers to the west, the town of Lewisboro to the south, the Town of Ridgefield, Connecticut to the east, and the Town of Southeast in Putnam County to the north.

The Town of North Salem includes the hamlets of Croton Falls, North Salem, Salem Center, and Purdys. The hamlet of Peach Lake is also partially located within North Salem, with the remainder being located within Southeast.

North Salem was first settled in the early 18th century and was primarily an agricultural community in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Town continues to be primarily a low-density rural community of single-family homes and open space due to strict zoning regulations throughout most of the 20th century. Today, most of the town has four-acre zoning. Slow growth results from the relatively small amount of vacant, developable land that meets zoning requirements.
